The Stranger Beside Me

The Stranger Beside Me

The Inside Story of Serial Killer Ted Bundy

The International Bestseller

Ann Rule was a writer working on the biggest story of her life, tracking down a brutal mass-murderer. Little did she know that the young man who was her close friend was the savage slayer she was hunting . . .

TED BUNDY was everyone’s picture of a natural ‘winner’ – handsome, charming, brilliant in law school, successful with women, on the verge of a dazzling career.

Fast-forward to January 24, 1989, Ted Bundy is executed. He had confessed to taking the lives of at least thirty-five young women, coast to coast.

This is his story: the story of his magnetic power, his unholy compulsion, his demonic double life, and his string of helpless victims. It was written by a woman who thought she knew Ted Bundy, until she began to put all the evidence together, and the whole terrifying picture emerged . . .

As recommended by the hosts of the podcast My Favorite Murder.

Fascinating further reading for viewers of the Netflix documentary Conversations with a Killer: The Ted Bundy Tapes.
